Children experience a wide variety of mathematical activities in order to develop a range of skills, knowledge and concepts with the ability to apply them. 

Our teaching style encourages children to think clearly and logically whilst being able to explain their methods and reasoning.  Children use their knowledge and skills to solve problems, generate new questions and make connections across other areas of the curriculum.

Scheme of Work 

We follow White Rose Maths (WRM). This is a mastery approach to the teaching of Mathematics whereby topics are taught in depth over a longer period.  This allows for the mastering of concepts before moving on to the next sequence. This we believe paves the way for children to be secure in what they have learnt. Click here to access the WRM progression document.


Calculation Policy

We follow the White Rose Calculation Policy which introduces key concepts using a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach. 


Teachers in all year groups plan using the White Rose scheme as the basis for most of their work, supplemented with resources such as Premium WRMRising StarsClassroom Secrets or Twinkl (Dive into Master). We aim, wherever possible, for children to access the work from their own year group. Occasionally, there may be a small number of children for whom this is not appropriate. They will look at earlier year groups if this is the case. Higher Ability children are extended using additional reasoning resources, maybe from NRich or NCETM etc.

Planning a Lesson

When planning a lesson, teachers need to plan for a balance of conceptual understanding, language and communication and mathematical thinking to support children’s mathematical problem solving. If a pupil has meaningful understanding of the maths they are learning, they will be able to represent it in different ways, use mathematical language to communicate related ideas and think mathematically with the concept. This will enable them to apply their understanding to a new problem in an unfamiliar situation.

Early Years

We aim daily for short adult-led focused inputs which can either be for the whole class or groups. This does not have to be formal and can include number rhymes, songs, and games as well as suggested prompts for learning from WRM. The children also have regular opportunities to practise their counting and subitising skills and revisit prior learning.

These inputs can be followed up with short adult-led activities 2/3 times each week. Opportunities to practise new skills through play are encouraged in different areas of the provision either independently or with adult support.
